Workshop Details

2018 Workshop

Under "Our History" above, read about the 2018 Women in the Word Workshop!  Please also view a video about our beginnings. 

God’s revelation of Himself to us and for us is worth digging into and hearing it speak.  Women in the Word: a Workshop provides tools to do that digging.  The Workshop helps refine the study tools you may already have and gives you some new ones.  You try out these tools as you work through your assigned passage in preparation for the WorkshopAt Women in the Word, you see and hear those tools modeled in large group sessions. Then you practice and refine them during the six hours spent with in small study groups. 

Reflections from  2018 Participants:

"Watching the lessons play out by different people and the discussion that followed opened my eyes to the wonderful ways to engage in Bible study."

"Always growing, challenging, but worth it!"

"I've never attended such a rich theological conference ever and look forward to next year."

"So much quality time in general sessions and small group sessions!  Not a moment was wasted."

"Positive, practical, refreshing to be under the teaching of learned women."

"WiW is just one example of God's plan for a united people!"

"My Study Group was an encouraging/affirming environment."

"I never dug in so deep before but I truly enjoyed it."

 The 2019 Women in the Word Workshop is October 25 and 26 -- our 14th!
